(Drudge) 2 dead as man stabs 16 schoolgirls and 2 adults in a rampage near Tokyo… (Kyodo News) A girl and a man are dead after a suspect in his 50s wielding long knife-like objects in both hands attacked them as the Catholic school pupils waited for a school bus around 7:40 Tuesday morning. According to eyewitnesses, the suspect slowly approached the children and was shouting "I'm gonna kill you" during the rampage. The bus driver got off and started to chase him, and a school official made an emergency call to police. An 11-y-o girl and a 39-y-o father of an unharmed pupil died of stab wounds to their necks. The suspect died in a hospital as a result of a self-inflicted stab wound to the neck, police said. Whoa.
(Drudge) 39 shot, 7 killed even as Chicago 'flooded the zone' with 1,200 additional cops for the holiday weekend… (Chicago Sun-Times) Last year, seven people were killed and 32 more wounded in shootings across the city over Memorial Day Weekend, which typically marks the unofficial start of summer. In 2017, six people were killed and 44 were wounded over the holiday weekend, while 2016 saw six people killed and 63 wounded. The Sun-Times counts the weekend from 5 p.m. Friday through 5 a.m. Tuesday morning. The violence this past weekend included a shooting on the Near West Side in which five people were shot in a single incident just after 6am Sunday, that left two people killed and three others wounded — Martez Cox, 27, and Antonio Green, 28, were taken to Stroger Hospital, where they died. Two women shot while sitting in a sedan on Hastings were in good condition at Mount Sinai Hospital. One man had a graze wound on his nose. Chicago Police Supt. Eddie Johnson, has no firm commitment from Mayor Lightfoot that he will stay in that job beyond this summer.
Lori Lightfoot prepares for summer violence… she’s the black LESBIAN new mayor of Chi-town… (Chicago Tribune) Police Department crime statistics through May 19 show Chicago recorded 162 slayings, 23 fewer than the year-earlier period. Lightfoot wants a more robust Office of Violence Prevention and increased investment in neighborhoods… helping citizens returning from prison and supporting crime victims and witnesses. She’s also “dissatisfied” with detectives not solving most of them.
(Drudge) 'American Soil' Is Increasingly Foreign Owned… (oh yeah, from what I’ve heard, Chinese have been coming to pay cash to buy up our real estate… but this story’s about farm land.) (NPR) today nearly 30 million acres of U.S. farmland are held by foreign investors, double the amount from 20 years ago — alarming to farming communities. (There are 915M acres of farmland in US, 2.3B acres of land total, per Google.) When the stock market tanked during the last recession, foreign investors began buying up big swaths of U.S. farmland. There’s no federal restrictions on the amount of land that can be foreign-owned, so it's been left up to individual states. With the median age of U.S. farmers at 55, many face retirement with no prospect of family members willing to take over — children often have no interest in taking it over. "Texas is kind of a free-for-all" says Ohio Farm Bureau's Ty Higgins, "You look at Iowa and they restrict it — no land in Iowa is owned by a foreign entity." Ohio, like Texas, also has no restrictions, and nearly half a million acres of prime farmland are held by foreign-owned entities. One Chinese company now owns 146,000 acres of prime U.S. farmland, as part of a 2013 buyout. Nationwide, Canadian investors own the most farmland. In Ohio, it's Germany, with 71,000 acres. The Germans are nice, they tend to let the family live out their lives in the family homestead, even while getting cash value for their land.
Tue, May 28, Hour 1: Technical Issues!
Apologies for technical issues at the beginning! We have a black engineer who was late and Joel didn’t know what to do!
Darryl calls and asks about a “cult” he joined in which they deal with “blood.” Jesse cuts him off to get back to guest Bill Lockwood.
GUEST: Bill Lockwood, blogger & host at http://AmericanLibertyWithBillLockwood.com also a preacher and school teacher in Wichita Falls and Iowa Park, TX, and author of the study guide Ezekiel: the Watchman of Israel, discusses homosexuality and Mayor Pete Buttigieg running for president. Bill and Jesse talk about all the liberals including Muslims and radical homosexuals who hate each other, but they join to take down Christianity in America. Blacks support evil, and whites are going down the same road of destruction.
TOP OF SECOND HOUR NEWS: Tuesday, May 28, 2019 –
(Drudge) TROUBLES: Pelley says complaints to CBS execs led to evening news ouster… and there is VIDEO… (The Daily Beast) Scott Pelley blasts former boss, news division president David Rhodes, who he claimed fired him for complaining about a “hostile work environment” for both male and female news division staffers — he said it while appearing on CNN to promote a new book. He was let go as anchor in May 2017, and now is on CBS’s 60 Minutes. One source says Pelley and Rhodes just didn’t like each other. Another person said Pelley wanted more money when budget was tight. (Who knows, who cares!)
(Drudge) First-ever private border wall built in New Mexico… Good work, landowner! (Wash. Times) The half-mile section will seal off a striking “gap” in the Border Patrol’s fence. A private group announced Monday it constructed the 18-foot steel bollard wall, similar to the designs used by the Border Patrol, faster and more cheaply than the government! “We’re closing a gap that’s been a big headache for them,” said Kris Kobach, the former secretary of state in Kansas, and informal immigration advisor to Trump, who is also general counsel for We Build the Wall, the group behind the new section.
Agents said perhaps 100 migrants a night would cross the opening, and drug runners would take advantage of the distraction. A typical night could exceed $100,000 worth of drugs through the gap! (A We Fund the Wall campaign set a $1 billion goal and has raised more than $22 million from more than 265,000 pledges through GoFundMe.) Kobach said construction began Friday and will be completed Tuesday. Tommy Fisher’s Fisher Sand & Gravel did the construction. Recently Mr. Fisher announced he could build 234 miles of fencing at $1.4 billion — or about $6 million per mile. That’s about a quarter of the cost of Mr. Trump’s current fencing, which goes off at about $25 million per mile.
Trump’s plans to build hundreds of miles of new and replacement wall took a hit late last week when a federal judge ordered a halt to part of his NATIONAL EMERGENCY declaration and shifting of money within the Pentagon to make up for Congress’s refusal to grant him the money. Obama Judge Haywood Gilliam (who’d donated to Obama… he black!) says the president can’t spend money when Congress has debated it and refused to approve it.
(Drudge) Veteran, age 95, graduates decades after leaving high school for World War II… wow, amazing! (WFLA) Joe Perricone got his diploma more than 70 years after Feb. 1943 when he was drafted while attending Hillsborough High School. Perricone was sent to Europe and returned to Tampa after the war. He received his diploma, but never got to walk at graduation. His grandson, Judge Thomas Palermo, arranged for his grandfather to walk at the school's graduation ceremony on Saturday with the help of the school board and Principal Gary Brady. The veteran finally received his diploma in person at a ceremony Saturday and was honored for his service.
(Drudge) Bernie Organizes Striking Workers… (Breitbart) He’s using his campaign’s mailing list and voter data they helped organize workers at McDonald’s who walked out last Thursday to demand a $15 an hour minimum wage. EVIL! “Bernie Sanders is joining in solidarity with McDonald’s workers in Dallas, and you can do the same right here in Iowa,” read one email the campaign sent out. “Showing up at a picket line for striking workers is an incredible act of solidarity to show that you support their fight for a better life.” When workers at the University of California went on strike May 16, the Sanders campaign blasted out emails to help organizers. “Tens of thousands of workers in the [UC] system are standing up...to stop the outsourcing and privatization of union jobs,” the email said. “We are hoping you can join these workers tomorrow.” COMMUNISM’S USEFUL IDIOTS!
Tue, May 28, Hour 2:
Chicago shootings over Memorial Day weekend: 39 shot, 7 killed. Black lesbian Mayor Lori Lightfoot rejected a plan to have the National Guard patrol high-crime neighborhoods. She wants these kids to think about consequences. She won’t be teaching values.
Black Wendy’s employee takes a bath in the restaurant sink; restaurant still passes inspection!
Micah from Indiana, first-time caller, doesn’t know answer to Biblical Question: You are the light of the world, and salt of the earth. What does that mean? He’s 13 and more raised by his mother — his parents are divorced. They don’t agree with him, and his mom’s concerned about his political opinions. He doesn’t believe in white privilege and just sees racism and sexism are just ideas to control people. His parents want him to be more liberal, to believe in racism, etc., even though it doesn’t exist. His parents call themselves conservative, but he’s starting to question it.
He doesn’t smoke pot. His older brothers like 23 and 25, both potheads, are brainwashed to believe in police brutality, etc. They always give a stupid anecdote that isn’t even true!
His dad just disagrees with him, but his mother gets concerned and mad at him. It wasn’t like it two years ago. His mother’s a Christian, and his father’s trying to be. He used to be neglectful, ignore what he’d say and not listen to him. So he’d go to his mother.
He says he has autism, or Asperger Syndrome, according to a doctor his parents took him to. He didn’t understand certain things in school. The teachers were stuck in their ways. His parents didn’t want to pump him full of drugs though, so he doesn’t take meds.
Micah asks: Should he try to convince his parents and them about racism? Do not get angry at them. Once you get angry, you lose. His mother married a manipulative drug addict, who they thought was a good guy. They divorced. Now he’s home all day, so they’re sending him to public school next year. His dad had 3 relationships that failed; they were sleeping over, and Micah knew it was wrong. He’d like to try living with his father. Don’t ever try to convince anyone of your political beliefs. They have a right to suffer.
Jesse tells Micah, be honest but don’t feel sorry, don’t get angry, don’t get frustrated. You don’t have a right to feel sorry for anyone. There’s always one or two kids set apart by God to be in the family but not of the family. Do right. Don’t have sex out-of-wedlock. Talk to your father, let him know you’d like to live with him, and that you need him to be right. Nothing in life is so important that you have to force it or be angry. Let it go if it doesn’t come easy.
He used to like to write stories but they wouldn’t go anywhere. Now he likes playing video games. Don’t become an adult all into video games. His brothers smoke pot and aren’t getting anywhere. Jesse urges him to try out his Silent Prayer http://silentprayer.video
TOP OF THIRD HOUR NEWS:
(Drudge) Clinton appears in Memorial Day parade… (The American Mirror) Bill and Hillary marched with Gov. Andrew Cuomo in a New York town parade. Bill looks a bit pale and frail. Someone tweeted that Hillary was “looking like an old grandma in a blue muumuu with black leggings.” For not being a political candidate, Hillary Clinton sure is keeping up a campaign-like schedule.
(Drudge) Franklin Graham calls Christians to ask God to embolden Trump against foes… Oh, he’s bold! Don’t worry, Franklin! (Franklin seems like a good guy but he was famously weak in one interview about whether Obama was a Christian, I still remember it! Goes to show people will remember and judge you forever if they see you be weak!) (Charlotte Observer) Franklin Graham calls for a Day of Prayer for Trump. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said last week that she is praying for President Donald Trump after he walked out of a meeting on infrastructure. (Who’s she praying to??) Graham and 250 other Christian leaders are calling for Sunday, June 2, to be a “Special Day of Prayer for the President” in hopes God will “protect, strengthen, embolden and direct” Trump against his enemies. “President Trump’s enemies continue to try everything to destroy him, his family, and the presidency,” Graham posted Sunday on Facebook. “In the history of our country, no president has been attacked as he has….We’re on the edge of a precipice…. We need to ask God to protect, strengthen, encourage, and guide the President.” On June 2, organizers of the Day of Prayer ask pastors across the nation to “lead their congregations in praying for the President….”
(Drudge) The UN’s World Health Organization deems 'gaming disorder' official illness… (CNET) Video game addiction is added to the organization's latest list of modern-day ills… yet they support homosexuality, transgender, etc., LOL. The World Health Organization on Saturday adopted the latest update to its International Classification of Diseases (ICD), which adds "gaming disorder" to its list of modern diseases. The organization last June added gaming addiction under its section of potentially harmful technology-related behaviors, including too much use of "the internet, computers, smartphones" and more. Despite contradictory research touted by video game trade groups, the latest ICD was officially approved at the 72nd World Health Assembly. "Gaming disorder" lives under the "disorders due to addictive behavior" section of the ICD. The American Psychiatric Association has it listed as still up for discussion (PDF) in the latest version of its (phony) diagnostic bible, the DSM-5. The American Medical Association backed away from "video game addiction" in 2007.
(Drudge) REDDIT co-founder: Glorifying extreme work schedules is 'toxic'... (CNBC) Tennis player Serena Williams’s husband Alexis Ohanian, said, “I’ve spoken out quite a bit about things like ‘hustle porn,’ and this ceremony of showing off on social [media] about how hard you’re working,” speaking at The Wall Street Journal’s Future of Everything Festival on Tuesday. “Y’all see it on Instagram and you certainly see it in the startup community, and it becomes really toxic….We see this play out, most toxically, among founders, who are already sort of emotionally broken. All of us who decide to start a company, we are kind of broken as people. And so when so much of your identity is wrapped up in your company already and you already feel so much pressure…. You have this culture of posturing, and this culture that glorifies the most absurd things and ignores things like self-care, and ignores things like therapy, and ignores things like actually taking care of yourself as a physical thing for the sake of work at all costs. It’s a toxic problem…”
BTW: More crap from the UN: WHO recognizes 'burn-out' as medical condition… (Straits Times) The World Health Organisation defines burn-out as "a syndrome ... resulting from chronic workplace stress that has not been successfully managed."
This is also in it’s ICD (International Classification of Diseases).
It’s characterised by three dimensions: "1) feelings of energy depletion or exhaustion; 2) increased mental distance from one's job, or feelings of negativism or cynicism related to one's job; and 3) reduced professional efficacy."
Tue, May 28, Hour 3:
Jesse talks about the border craziness, and dealing with a family he visited for Memorial Day — they all are against the wall and Trump.
What’d Joel do for Memorial Day?
Rashida Tlaib spouts nonsense talking about corruption from the Oval Office.
John from Alberta, Canada, first-time caller, tries answering Biblical Question: Are you the light of the world, and the salt of the earth? Sometimes. He’s 32 or so. He smokes pot, and had a little puff this morning. How are you gonna be the light of the world and the salt of the earth when you’re high? Good question! (Laughter.) Want to overcome pot? Yeah, for sure. Overcome your mother. Was his mother perfect? Father? He said he had strong male and female role models or something. He said his mom was “too loving.” How? Do you like being an emotional male? No. It shows weakness. Forgive your mother for being too loving, and your father for not protecting you.
Joel reads Super Chats
More great (and some not so great, but still remarkable) calls! Thank you!
